What would have Mahatma Gandhi done in the political scenario obtaining in the country presently if he was alive to-day is the question haunting my mind. He was great, a Himalaya in stature, blessed with the capacity to storm the whole world, let alone India. He was a Gibralter rock remaining firmly unmoved in whatever adverse circumstances he might have been confronted with. Always bubbling with new ideas despite his age in the wrong side, he could shake not only a hillock but equally a mountain of problems just by raising his eye lids in the direction. Suppose as a matter of some cursory imagination, India is able to have another Gandhi (not at all the present crop of the Gandhies in New Delhi) in the country, would it do any thing to alleviate the miseries turbulently flowing like a tsunami?. Certainly not is the answer flashing in my mind. A mahatma, a sage, a non-violent revolutionary, in him might have been just a flop in view of the fact that the problems confronting the country currently are far more Herculean than what he faced during his time fighting against the foreign rule of the Britishers. The most corrupt crop of the politicians rampantly devastating the country as on date would have ousted him from the scene, even if they had to hire some Nathuram Godhse for the purpose. The Mahatma was capable enough to ultimately oust the British but it could have been a task impossible for him now to get the country rid of the professional politicians who are the most shameless lot of the people to budge an inch beyond their only goal of self interest, come what may. Corruption, rape, vandalism, anarchism, loot, poverty, hooliganism, are all an adorable apparel for them as are ornaments to the ladies. Mahatma could have shuddered against them with, at the most, tears in his eyes. It is good that the great Mahatma is no more in this country; if he was alive, his life could have been just miserable.
